welcome to the community here, Dancingbear. In "real" life I've been a bit of a recluse(!) and very shy, not much of a people person. Most of the shows I went to, I never interacted with other Deadheads other than the ones in my seating area, or friends I went with -passing and sharing various things. When I'd walk about between sets, I was an observer, lots of trippin on the scene, but rarely interacting. In that way, i was not a deadhead. I've interacted with more heads here than in most of my shows combined. I thought most of "them" were clickish-elitists. Turns out, that was me in most cases. If i can't give love, how can i receieve it?? Hell, it took me years before I ever even broke into a dance at a show.
(late 90's) I'd bet hard cash that I'm the oldest poster here by far, though I'm not sure...maybe old head Zimmer...
Just being at this forum has loosened me up 1000%. Well, never too old to "change"-(At least my 2cents worth). One of these daze, I'm going to hang out in the floor area and not just the seats...sorry to bare my pitypot constipated heart, I'm much better now-lol, And I'm blown away by all the very kind people here in spite of my occasional rants (sorry McClone)and conservative views. Toward morbidity, I don't want to die a lonely bitter man (damn! i have to stop listening to Black Peter so much)
Anyway, HAPPY TURKEY DAY!! from this turkey
